Imagine waiting for your sweetheart to return from an intense war zone for over a year, and planning your future together, only to have him skyjack an airplane and shatter all those plans. As Stevenson drove along a Nevada highway, she was startled by a radio announcement of a skyjacking over Reno. Little did she know it was her beloved Robb Heady who had held the crew hostage while they completed his demand for $200,000 ransom.

At the tender age of 22, Mary sat in federal court and heard the judge pronounce a 30 year sentence on the man she loved.  Years of waiting for his release from prison ensued, but that trauma is what pushed her onto her spiritual path to change her life for the better. 

Now Stevenson has related the entire enthralling personal story in her new book, Falling Over Reno: The True Story of the Skyjacker’s Wife, which officially releases on August 27, 2015. This fascinating book presents the actual events of the June 2, 1972 skyjacking of United Flight 239 from Reno International Airport.  It is a true crime story offering an in-depth look at the understanding Mary gained throughout the ordeal, and how this event was to thrust her onto her spiritual path.  Here is a love story offering readers the example of how hope, courage, determination, and unconditional love can help people get through even the most profound calamities.  We can take inspiration as we read this story and see what it took for Mary to wait for Robb during his years in prison, so that she could eventually become The Skyjacker’s Wife. 

“This book is a recapitulation of my spiritual journey, as I emerged from the dark night of the soul caused by our sudden tearful separation.  You know the saying: “If you want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans for your life.”  It took a long time to see it all in perspective, but I had the help of some wonderful spiritual teachers along the way. I hope that my sharing of this very personal story, will help others become more aware of how God is trying to reach them as well.  We can run, but we cannot hide.  Resistance is futile when it comes to listening to the voice of our own Higher Self.  Don’t I know, after having to learn the hard way,” says Stevenson.
